tv   Red Eye With Tom Shillue  FOX News  October 7, 2016 12:00am-1:01am PDT

12:00 am
you go first. the most powerful storm to threaten the u.s. atlantic coastline in more than a decade. that is how officials are describing hurricane matthew. good morning, welcome to our special coverage, i'm gregg jarrett. >> and i'm heather childers. it's now a category three hurricane. but packing 130-mile-per-hour winds as it bears down on florida. and this morning, states of emergency exist in florida, south carolina and georgia. matthew has yet to hit the u.s. coast. thousands are without power, and
12:01 am
officials fear that that number will climb by the time the danger has passed. >> you're going to lose power if you're on the east coast. there's no question, you will lose power. you are going to lose power. we just don't know how long. we are going to lose power. millions of floridians will be without power. >> matthew has already left a trail of destruction, especially in hate eye where the death toll is close to 300. the bahamas have been hit hard as well. >> we have been tracking the storm for several hours. even though it's been dropped to a category three, do not think that you're out of the woods. >> i want to real quickly go back and talk about haiti. they haven't been able to get to that far western tip of the island so far. so expecting to see the damage
12:02 am
even more and that death toll unfortunately to climb. and they've been in the middle of a cholera outbreak. this will exacerbate that in the next few months. here's the winds, you can seat winds up to 70 miles per hour. what we've been seeing is this eye over the last six hours going to have the two eyes, a very, very center where the strongest winds and the outer eye, the outer eye battling the inner one, and it looks like we are seeing the inner one finally completely beginning to collapse. if that's the case, we will be seeing the wind field expand. and this eye, we have about four or five hours over water will likely begin to contract a little bit. there's a very good chance we could see some strengthening of this storm as we move over the next number of hours, but theis
12:03 am
band right here, we will have winds pushing 100 miles per hour. when we get into the oranges, we're talking about winds significantly stronger than that. the trajectory is off toward the west. they wobble a little bit, a little towards the north. but i think we're getting very close to seeing some sort of an interaction with what is now a very large eye in across areas of the coast here and likely making some sort of a center of it moving very close to land. we consider it landfall when the center-most point crosses land. does that happen? we're not sure. but either way, smi war to tany north of this, we're seeing a ton of water being pushed up with storm surge. the overall trend is what i want to point out that we see this move off the coast of the
12:04 am
carolinas. and move toward the southeast. some of the models do pull it off to shore, which would be great news. i think higher as we go further north. so georgia and south carolina, and guys, it's just so important to realize, so many times, in fact almost always we have a hurricane that makes landfall, this is not going to be that case. we're going to be dealing with this storm for another 36 hours or so, across florida. in fact all day tomorrow i think is going to be very significant from around the cape canaveral area to daytona beach up to jacksonville. we will be watching it on shore closer than anything we have seen thus far, then it moves to georgia and the carolinas, and that takes us to saturday night. a lot of time to go with this. >> i was just about to ask you that. because we got an e-mail from some folks in satellite beach,
12:05 am
which is just south of cocoa beach in cape canaveral, titusville and so forth. that's really the area you're targeting with your trajectory. >> that's the area we're targeting over the next four to six hours. but the next four to six hours, exactly what you're talking about. they've already been seeing winds in the 70-mile-per-hour range, but those are going to climb over the next four to six hours. >> for people that are there on the ground, what can they expect to experience in terms of the wind, in terms of any, if the winds were to stop for any period of time. if the eye of the storm passes over where they are. >> yeah, if it does, we will see, if the eye does go over, the center of it, you'll see it weakening during that time that you're underneath the center of that storm. if this is our eye right here,
12:06 am
this is, say about an hour from now, we're getting very close to the north of point st. lucie. you get the very significant winds going the on direction. storm surge one way, and then also these are a lot of barrier islands. so the cause ways are going to be dealing with water moving from one side to the other and a storm surge on the backside of those cause ways. >> once again, we'll check back with you shortly. we're joined from melbourne, florida. what's it like now? >> reporter: it keeps getting worse, i will say that. it is howling. you can hear the wind. you really couldn't hear that significantly of a force. that howl going down the street.
12:07 am
in fact, you can see the streetlights which have gone off three times now, but they've always come back on. you can really see that rain flying down the street with the wind. what you're looking at here, the direction that the rain and wind is going here, the southbound on u.s. 1. so the winds are coming from the south, that's classic counterclockwise rotation of the hurricane. the eye, the center of the storm is still to the southeast of where we are here on the palm bay/melbourne city line. so it's around vero beach. it's heading northward. and so far, in brevard county, which is the space coast of where we are, 20,000 people now have no power. and citywide, florida power and light reporting about 200,000
12:08 am
floridians now without power. the hurricane is only halfway up the state, so as it goes further up the other half the state, the eye wall's going to be closer to the coastline, maybe crossing into land, and undoubtedly, you'll be seeing a whole lot more people losing electricity. the governor and the emergency operat operation center is saying millions will have no power. and it may not just be for three or five days. it could be for weeks. but florida power and light, ever since 2004 and 2005, those bad hurricane years, they did invest millions and millions of dollars trying to strength and lot of lines, burying a lot of lines, and in southern florida today, in the bottom three counties, where it's
12:09 am
significantly almost fine conditions now, especially in brou broward and miami dade, the winds are very light. that's the whole story for thei. you're going to get a whole day of hellacious howling activity like it this. and it's going to get better and it's going to get worse for the people up north. we have cape canaveral. after that, daytona beach, after that, new smyrna beach, and jacksonville. this is still hours away from the center ever the storm reachreac reaching jacksonville. we did see a couple people walking the dogs. and they were struggling. and the dog as well, struggling to stay on their feet out there in the rain and wind. it's -- it's category three.
12:10 am
as i said, right here, it's probably, 60 the wind speed, but gusts, i'm guessing are hitting at least 70. maybe a little higher. >> did people make use of the shelters, the governor talked about the shelters being made available for folks. >> yeah, especially those who didn't have the means to get hotel rooms. plus, getting a hotel room before the storm actually hit, became next to impossible. we were trying to a lot of those people, tens of thousands have hunkered down in shelters. there's 3500 national guards men
12:11 am
and women who have been activated. that is likely to increase. the governor said he's never activated that many national guardsman and women. that underlines the significance and severity of the destruction and the ca lalamb us to nature. and so far, what forecasters are expecting to siee are pretty muh on the money. how far toward the coastline, the strongest, most fierce winds are, i guess to the docoastline. the storm surge could send a lot of floodwaters, up to ten feet inland. >> it can change in a moment. it's amazing to me, you talk about people out there with you walking their dog. the last time we checked in with you, there was a family, a mom and dad pushing their baby in a
12:12 am
crib down the street. you've covered a lot of these and been based there in miami. what is your feeling? it's called the storm of the century. how can you compare it to others that you've covered at this point? >> i don't think i've seen it that bad. as we were over the french quarter and the business district. that was the first time we were in an urban city. there were glass windows falling off windshields and cars and trucks that were basically exploding from the change in pressure. this one, it's similar to that in how strong the wind is coming
12:13 am
through, without a doubt. >> phil keating, thanks very much, in melbourne, florida. we'll be back with you. a long night for everybody. and thank you so much. >> you've done a great job for us down there. will, hurricane matthew coming ashore in florida and emergency officials doing their best to keep everyone safe. joining us now is joanne magly. thank you so much for taking the time to join us. >> the latest in valousha county, what do you want residents to snow? >> caller: right now the most important thing is for people to stay safe. and stay sheltered. this is going to be a long, long duration that we're going through. we're not even at the hurricane strength force winds that we'll
12:14 am
get, you know, at an earlier morning hours. so it's very important for people to be able to stay safe, keep themselves safe and stay sheltered. >> tell us, specifically, for people who don't live in florida or aren't familiar with the terrain or the state, where's volusia county located? >> caller: so most people will recognize daytona beach. we're just broadcasting from brevard. volusia county is the county north of brevard, and daytona beach sits there, the most famous beach on the coast. we're about an hour west of, i'm sorry, an hour east of orlando. and we have a number of, of coastal cities. we have 40-plus miles of beach. and we have the mandatory order
12:15 am
go out yesterday. rv motor home parks. we are concerned, of course, with the storm surge, which is going to push potentially push water inward up to u.s. 1, which is a good length from the coastline. so we, we think people are, you know, heeding the warnings. we have about 4,000 people in shelters across the county. we know that there's about close to 9,000, currently, without power. >> mm-hm. >> caller: so hopefully, like i said, people just stay where they are. stay in place, and keep themselves safe. >> how long do you anticipate those shelters will remain open? and i guess it just depends on what you wake up to tomorrow morning to when people will be
12:16 am
allowed to come back in and take a look at their property. >> caller: exactly. well, you know, the shelters will be open until, until it's safe for people to be able to leave and go back to their areas. you know, all of our bridges, now, those, those shut down earlier, so preventing, preventing crossing from beach side to mainland. and i know we just recently heard some reports that on the dun lauten bearidge, both sidesf that bridge were already under water. so we're, we know we're going to experience a lot of flooding. we don't have any wide reports of damage yet, but, again, it's early. >> how long have you been in florida? i mean, have you experienced other hurricanes like this? and can you compare them for us?
12:17 am
>> caller: well, i have not. so i moved to florida in 2003, and i was a news producer, so i actually was able to have charl charley, francis and gene in 2004 as a producer for the news. and where we are in volusia county, that was the triple whammy, and we were without power for weeks on end, one after the other. so this is, for me personally, this is, you know, the first time actually experiencing a real massive storm and actually, you know, working out of the eoc for days on end. >> what about any assistance that you're getting from fema? we spoke to someone earlier about that, in terms of fuel, in terms of supplies. in terms of cleaning up the area tomorrow morning. what about that assistance from fema? >> caller: well, right now, we don't really have any unmet
12:18 am
needs right now. volusia county government is a well-run government. and we prepare, prepare, prepare. so hopefully, you know, once we assess, once the storm goes through, and we assess the damage, you know, we'll see what we need, and we have a strong community, and we'll pull together. and hopefully. >> hope for the best, for sure. >> caller: yes. >> okay. thank you so much for joining us from volusia county, we will keep you in our prayers. stay safe. >> caller: thank you. >> millions were urged to flee. not everyone heeded that warning. >> whether n we come back, one ride irwho refuses to be intimidated by this category three storm.
12:19 am
12:20 am
12:21 am
12:22 am
hurricane matthew is making its way up the florida coastline. preparing for its arrival is john ward, who is director of emergency management for clay county, florida, just outside of jacksonville, he joins us now on the phone. thanks for taking the time. talk to us a little bit about what you're bracing for and how you're preparing for it.
12:23 am
>> caller: well, i think, sir, our team's been in place since yesterday. we've been activated when we pulled the trigger on our evacuation. we are an inland county, just west of st. augustine, st. john's county, however, we have the st. john's river that flows. it is just as impactful on the storm surge and the estuaries coming off it. we have been looking at evacuations and pushing citizens to prepare and take action. because many of the citizens in our area have not experienced anything of this magnitude. we've dealt with a lot of complacency, and it's been pushing that out. >> was there a mandatory evacuation in that area or voluntary? and did most people heed it? >> caller: well, most people did not heed it. we have some that are moving and some that don't. although, and there's no real
12:24 am
difference in my belief in this of a voluntary or a mandatory, if local officials are asking you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. there's no legal authority to make you move, so the mandatory evacuation really has no meaning with that. >> so, in clay county, which is near jacksonville, which we've pointed out, what have you seen and experiencing right now? >> caller: right now we're dealing with just some light winds and rain with this nor'easter. our impact, of tropical storm force winds will be in about the 7:00 a.m. hour. and we're looking at those with the storm movement for 24- 26 hours. the. >> you know, in some areas, local law enforcement is not allowed to leave the premises, first responders are not allowed to respond, because it's simply
12:25 am
too dangerous. what about where you are? >> caller: that is correct. generally, what you see is when things get above 45 miles per hour, first response agencies will not respond due to their safety. we have geographic command elements set up at the different fire stations with law enforcement, fire rescue and public works, and it's up to their respective areas to monitor that, 642 square miles. so it could be different on one side of the county than the other. >> on my monitor, i'm looking at the trajectory of the hurricane, now a category three, but you're still talking about 120 miles per hour. and it's going to hit jacksonville pretty directly. what do you envision worst-case scenario? >> what we're looking at again is the extent of the tropical force winds, 26- 46 hours. the hurricane-force winds along the county, and the significant
12:26 am
storm surge down the river and into my estuaries off the river. >> in practical terms, are you talking about flooded homes and businesses? in addition to things like downed power lines? even more structural damage than mere flooding? consider the off the refer we're going to be seeing flooding and flooded homes and trees down and massive power outages. >> all right, john ward, clay county, thank you for taking the time to speak to us. >> and he mentioned the 120-mile-per-hour winds, a category three. that is the sustained winds, then you have the wind gusts going way above that. >> that's the stuff that can just tear away tree limbs and pose imminent danger to people, and in signs and all kinds of debris that just gets picked up. and thrown around. and can kill people.
12:27 am
so you got, it's got to be very dangerous, take shelter, heed the warnings and do what authorities are telling you to do. >> all of this is the reason about 2 million people were told to evacuate. a state of emergency in florida, south carolina and georgia. in florida, about 200,000 people without power. we will continue to follow hurricane matthew as it moves up the coast. >> that's right. georgia, south carolina anxiously awaiting the storm's arrival. our special coverage continues in just a moment. w...i'm in bri tennessee. on this side of the road is virginia... and on this side it's tennessee. no matter which state in the country you live in, you could save hundreds on car insurance by switching to geico. look, i'm in virginia... i'm in tennessee... virginia... tennessee... and now i'm in virginessee. see how much you could save on car insurance. or am i in tennaginia? hmmm...
12:28 am
12:29 am
12:30 am
12:31 am
dawn is just a couple of hours away now in florida. what will it bring? fox news chief meteorologist rick joins us. give us an update on when and wear? >> the next couple hours, we're going to see the strongest winds move onshore, and i think by around 6:00, 7:00, we're going to see the storm get very close towards the cape canaveral area, and we're going to see the eye wall running right along the shore. so everything we've seen so far has been the storm approaching the coast, but we're about to get to the coast. and that's when things are really going to peck up. we've got the winds in the 70s across the coastline. but the strongest winds are just
12:32 am
offshore. we're having the battle between the inner eye wall and the outer eye wall. and it looks like we're about at the point where those are consolidating into one, and we will likely see this strengthen. the pressure is still very, very low. once this happens, i think we'll see the storm strengthen as it moves onshore. it has stretched out the wind field, and instead of the strongest winds being in the very, very center of it, we're seeing strong winds across a much wider area. that's what we're going to be seeing as this moves onshore. if we watch this trajectory, we're going to see this moving very, very close toward the cape canaveral area, it's the northern part of florida that will have a much closer brush with this storm. take a look at this one model. it brings the center very close, 9:00, 10:00, 11:00 tomorrow afternoon, right off the shore
12:33 am
of northern florida and georgia and then south carolina. we have a long ways to go, at least until saturday night into sunday morning before this thing finally moves offshore. so a long ways to go, a lot of areas that are going to see a lot more rain, the storm surge obviously, and we will see a lot of power outages. already 250,000 people out of power and that number will rise as we move through the day tomorrow. >> and when you seay georgia an south carolina, that includes savann savannah. >> the rain fall totals will going to increase, georgia and south carolina, 15-inch rainfall total. that will cause flooding, but then when you add in the water from the storm surge pushed into this area, into the inlets, into
12:34 am
the marshes and rivers, then that water's there and the rain on top of it, it's going to cause big problems along that coast. rick reichmuth, thank you very much. >> charleston definitely floods. >> you can take a buggy ride in charleston, and it's a tour of the flooded area, the historic flooded areas. they say oh, it never happens anymore. wait and see. >> hurricane matthew is bearing down on florida, moving back to that state with heavy winds and rains. and a storm surge is expected to rise to 11 feet. more than 2 million people we've told you across the southeast, warned to flee inland. it is the most powerful storm to threaten the atlantic coast lean in more than a decade. it is about 100 miles right now or maybe a little bit more off the coast of south florida. the bands well into the state
12:35 am
already. fox 35 orlando is standing by live for us in brevard county. tell us about the conditions there. we can see the wind seems to have pecked up sense we talked to you last. >> reporter: yeah, it's definitely getting a lot worse, heavier rain and gusts. we came to the back of the building because there's more open area. we've been seeing transformers go out here in the background. i was told that a lot of palm city has lost power. thank goodness, we haven't lost power here at the hotel. but, again, things are getting much worse. and a rill bit inside the building also we've been seeing a little bit of a drip. so we're hoping that it's not, you know, there isn't too much of a flooding, but, again, it's coming from the roof. we've just been saturated. and this is what we've been experiencing periodically, just strong gusts, branches falling
12:36 am
out. you can see over here, just the winds, the trees are going crazy. and hotel guests are actually having a hard time sleeping through all of this. and, again, it's just been, it's been pretty nasty out right now. and people should not be driving out, but we have been seeing that it's pretty much quiet out here. people have been seeking shelter. we have eight shelters here in brevard county. hundreds of people have sought shelter there, because a lot of them have houses along the beach. so it's definitely not a safe place. you want to be indoors. back to you guys. >> jackie, you mentioned the hotel and people were staying there. were you able to speak with any of them in terms of evacuating and what they were concerned about? >> reporter: yeah, yeah, we have been able to speak with them. a lot of them have lived in florida all their life. and they said this is definitely the worst hurricane they've ever experienced. so they were taking this
12:37 am
seriously, and that's why they're just kind of hunkered down here at the hotel. but a lot of them are worried. we saw a couple, they were just pacing back and forth, just worried about what type of destruction this is going to do for their communities here. so a lot of people are worried. >> yeah, as we speak to you, we're looking at some pictures we saw just a moment ago, some peoples' boats there in one of the harbors. okay. so we tell people all the time, don't go out in this, and then we have reporters like you and photographers and crew that are out in it. and we can hear the wind whipping. it sounds like even stronger since you started talking. what are you doing. >> you and your crew, to ke to safe. >> reporter: you see this? this is the door, this is how close we are for shelter. it's too dangerous for us to be driving around to see if there are any power lines down. and but, yeah, that's what we're trying to do, just trying to
12:38 am
stay dry in there. so yeah, definitely don't want to be doing what we're doing, but there's some other folks even driving in this, but, again, the emergency officials can't stress enough, if something happens, they won't be able to help you, that you're basically on your own, because it would be too dangerous for first responders to help you, because of the gusts, the slick roads, you name it. and we haven't even seen the worst of it yet. >> jackie, batten down the hatches. be careful, you and your crew, thank you so much, thank you. >> a slight weakening in the hurricane. sustained winds dropping to about 120 miles per hour making it technically a category three hurricane, but it's still incredibly fierce. and the national hurricane center is warning it's expected to remain a very powerful storm as it gets closer to the florida coastline. we're going to have more of our live, continuous special coverage when we return.
12:39 am
12:40 am
12:41 am
12:42 am
i served in iraq in tikrit in 2009. when i took the ancestry dna test, i mean a few results came up that were really shocking. 11% of me comes from the part where i had served. we all come from such different backgrounds that you never know. hurricane matthew is battering florida, as you can see by that satellite image. phil keating is among our reporters on the atlantic coast of florida. and he joins us now from melbourne, florida. >> wow. >> reporter: cue the surge of
12:43 am
wind on cue here in the last five minutes, all of the streetlights and the power of this building went to pitch-black, and i can tell you, there's so much rain. it's in the middle of the night. and if there are no lights, it was dark, dark. but they've come back on. and the streetlights have come back on, too. so it might have been crazy surge through the power grid here. but we're back up. so that's got to be great news. but their is is exactly why the don't want anybody on the roads, and they don't want anybody on the roads after 6:00 tonight. that's just dangerous, very dangerous. the wind is howling, and the eye of the storm, hurricane matthew, still, due east of us. it's still moving our way, down off of vero beach right now, about 30 miles to the south of here. we're about the halfway point of
12:44 am
the state, roughly, from the florida city, key largo. up to the georgia state line. it's going to be a long day today and into tonight for the northern half of the east coast of florida. so millions of people, projected by the governor, could possibly lose power, have no electricity. right now there's about 200,000 people in the state without power. and in brevard county, where we are, along the space coast of florida, melbourne, cocoa beach, cape canaveral. 20,000 people, perhaps more are without power. it's bad enough riding out a hurricane, especially if you didn't move inland. you stayed in your house and shuttered up all your windows which takes anywhere between three and eight hours to do on a house. to be in there and have electricity and air conditioning
12:45 am
is a lot different than to be in there with absolutely no power and a very hot, hot florida summerhouse. i mean, it's actually into fall, but in southern florida, it's like still another month of summer-like conditions. it's miserable. if that's your situation. so we could have millions of miserable floridians. and that's certainly what a lot of people are expecting before the worst of this hurricane moves north of here and out of this state. so this is going to be a pretty intense next couple of hours where we are in brevard county. two or three hours, probably,et. and finally, maybe, by 7:00 a.m., some noticeable improvement, but, that's the latest right here in brevard county along the space coast. >> phil keating, live in melbourne, thanks. >> once the threat from hurricane matthew has subsided,
12:46 am
fema will kick into action to assist all of those left homeless by the storm. and joining us by phone is micha micha michael weincheck. what kind of preparation goes into this emergency situation? >> caller: as an organization, we prepared years in advance through planning and exercise activities, and this storm is playing out much like many of those activities we've conducted in the past. most recently in our emergency operation center, for the last three days, we have issued an evacuation order for our coastal and low-lying areas, and currently, we are bracing for a very significant storm, a storm unlike anybody has seen in recent memory. we're anticipating devastating property damage and significant
12:47 am
loss of life if events play out as they currently project. >> and your county, specifically, it includes what, st. augustine, several of the beach areas, all the way up towards jacksonville where it shows where i believe somewhere in that area where the storm is going to actually, cape canaveral, go into that area. but you have what, over 200,000 people, the population in that county, have you heard any calls that went out this evening from people who did not listen to you and heed those warnings and try to evacuate? >> caller: yeah, unfortunately, in the strongest-possible terms we've encouraged people to evacuate. the this is not a storm for people to try to ride out at home, especially along the coastal areas, like i said. unfortunately, until it got dark and until the winds started picking up significantly, many people didn't heed those warnings and encouragement to leave. we are getting requests now,
12:48 am
unfortunately, it's too dangerous for many of our first responders and law enforcement personnel to even be on the streets right now. our message to residents now is to hunker down wherever you're at, whether you're at home, a shelter or a friend's house. don't try to get back out on the street. >> thank you so much for taking the time to join us, batten down the hatches. stay safe. >> thank you very much. >> right now, hurricane matthew is make its way up the florida coast as a category three, about 120-mile-per-hour winds. >> but the day's not over. it's a long day ahead for those in the storm's paternih. our coverage continues next.
12:49 am
12:50 am
12:51 am
12:52 am
right now hurricane matthew is making its way up through florida's atlantic coast. those in georgia anxiously following the path. we're live in savannah. caroline? >> reporter: good morning to you, president obama has declared a state of emergency here in georgia. and that is incredibly important, because it frees up money and resources from the federal level. we are under a mandatory evacuation east of 95. the buses were running all day yesterday and start again at 6:00 a.m. and shut down at noon. those buses will be getting the last to leave here out of this
12:53 am
area. they have to shut down at noon, because that's when the tropical storm force winds are expected. they need to get out and get their families out too. they want no one on the ground in georgia. no one has any institutional memory of a hurricane. the last cat three or above to hit georgia was in 1898. the last hurricane of any kind to hit here was hurricane david in 1979. it was a small one, hit the shore and basically went poof. that is not what we're expecting here. it will come in late tonight and take its sweet time marching up the coast. you have north carolina to the north, poking out. so georgia, we normally miss things here, but we're incredibly vulnerable to storm surge. we have many inlets. 15 meters above sea level here. so georgia is going to take it on the chin. that's why they want everyone out of here who can get out, get out now. >> what about a big coastal town
12:54 am
like savannah? how perilous is it for the residents there? and what about storm surge and flooding? >> reporter: yeah, storm surge is going to be the problem. if it reaches that 11 feet or maybe tops it, it's going to be a terrible scene. we're down here on the water now. it's pretty calm. but even on a normal thunderstorm day, this town will flood. talking to one of my colleagues who's worked here for ten years, she said i have no idea how bad it will get during a hurricane. we haven't seen one, because they are so flood prone, that is what we worried about. not just the wind, which could be awful, it's the storm surge, push beiing 11 feet. if you add high tides and rough waves, it's going to be a rough one. it could stick around for quite some time and with all the inlets and rivers in georgia, it's going to be a rough time.
